Monarch Staffing, Inc. (MSTF.PK) Awarded Contract Extension With the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and Corrects Press Release Previously Issued on July 31, 2009

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA--(Marketwire - October 12, 2009) - Monarch Staffing, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MSTF), and its wholly owned subsidiary Drug Consultants, Inc. ("DCI"), a provider of healthcare staffing services, announced two updates regarding contracts with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation ("CDCR") and the California Department of Veteran Affairs ("CDVA").

DCI was awarded one contract extension for Speech Therapy Services which extends the service period to September 30, 2010.

Additionally, Monarch Staffing corrected its July 31, 2009 press release announcing a CDVA Clinical Dietician Services contract award to DCI. The July 31 announcement was based on preliminary indications of the contract award to DCI. However, DCI's bid was rejected and the contract subsequently awarded to another service provider.

DCI furnishes personnel to perform a range of pharmacy, nursing and other healthcare staffing services in support of the operations of government and commercial facilities, including its largest client, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. DCI has experience in providing its services in rural areas of California where many state facilities are located and healthcare professionals are not readily available.
